You've Got Mail Card with the Very Cute Snails

 Hi Everyone,

I've just received my Snailed It bundle of products and they are so cute and just right to be coloured.  Now, I don't do much colouring because I don't think I'm that good at it, but with Stampin Blends, it's really easy.


1 piece of poppy parade card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4"
1 piece of basic black card stock 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"
1 piece of basic white 3 7/8" x 5 5/8" and 1 piece 3 5/8" x 5 3/8" and a scrap for the speech bubble
Scrap of seaside spray for the mini envelope
Stampin Cut and Emboss machine
Snail dies
Snailed It stamp set
Simply scored
Bone folder
Multipurpose adhesive
Bermuda bay ink
Mini glue dots
Poppy parade, daffodil delight, granny apple green, bermuda bay, crumb cake, flirty flamingo Stampin Blends
Memento Black ink


On the long side score the poppy parade card at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make a landscape card.

Adhere the basic black layer, leaving an equal border all around the edges.

On the smaller piece of basic white card, stamp your design, I've used two snails and the toadstools and colour them in.

Stamp the speech bubble on a scrap and add the sentiment on the inside and die cut.  Die cut the envelope with the scrap of seaside spray and fold and burnish to score lines.  Add mini glue dots to the flaps to seal it closed.

Adhere the coloured in layer to the card front and add the speech bubble and the envelope.

Adhere the remaining basic white layer to the inside of the card.

Another quick and easy card, give it a try, take yourself out of your comfort zone and try something different, I like how this turned out and am planning to do more colouring now.
